one the practical side of things,
the camera movement needs improving / smoothing. The detail level could be far more minimal or with far more detail but now it’s on the middle, not good. The music doesn’t fit with the video and the time length short
and as Zerolink mentioned above, the most important thing is the question “What purpose does it serve?”
I hope this is helpful. Everything is subjective off course and this is my opinion.
one possible solution could be to change the purchase system of stock video like it is right now on photodune. Depending on the dimensions of the item and off course the production value of the clip. Right now many authors have the same items for different dimensions. I can’t see how this can be considered as ergonomic.
Imho milestone threads are just flooding the forum with useless threads/info. Nonetheless though if some people need this kind of ego/sales boost it would be wonderful if there was a specific section for this kind of posts and keep the main vh forum free of countless congratulations.
excellent work!! search through items = piece of cake! nice
i don’t know if that helps you but a different approach is to create your own textures (thinking long-term). Personally this is what i do. In most places i go i have a camera and taking pictures of things i like and which seem useful to compositing & design. Afterwards fix them in Photoshop and then categorize them in my personal library. As the time pass the library gets bigger & bigger and starts to cover your projects at a good percent, sometimes even 100%.
heheheehe nice one!!! some things really unite us all..
i’ve read all the posts on this matter very carefully. No one insulted you Graphic4444. I express that with all the objectivity i can master. The authors here just expressed opinions which are different than yours. They should somehow agree with you because you spend much time and money here? I can not comprehend this kind of logic, even in this aggressive capitalist system which most of us live in.
Side Note: Authors came and still coming here to sell their time & creativity, buyers are here because it’s a good bargain for that effort and Envato is the connection who is arranging the Terms. It’s that simple even if i like it or not.
(if somehow this post is considered flame, inappropriate or insulting, these are not my intentions)
bosone saidI ignore all spamming messages from AJ authors.
of course i’m still trying to find out new VH authors that will feature my music in their new projects, but really i don’t have any good ideas about how to promote my music between VH community…without spamming if you, as VH authors, have a preferred way to find out AJ music let us know!
VH authors look for specific music for their specific project. And it’s 99,99 % that you have no the music that we need. So it’s a waste of time.
The only good way to promote yourself:
1. Find AE project (already created).
2. Create your own music 100% fitting to the video.
3. Don’t contact author through e-mail. (It’s VERY important step!)
4. Just leave the message on “Comments” page. Something like: “Hi! I created music special for this item. You can check it here: link. If you like it, please, add the link to my music in your description. Thanks”
That is all. And if your music will be good enough. Authors will put your link in the description, because it cost nothing for them.
one of my favorites movies is “La belle verte” or “Green Beautiful”. A forgotten french movie dealing with human condition and behavior. IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115650/
For directing skills i certainly recommend the “Enter the Void” from Gaspar Noe. This man took it in a whole other level. My opinion is that if the movie was re-edited again and made it 30 or 40mins shorter it would be the best movie ever made. IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1191111/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
Photography wise there is a documentary called “Samsara” which is absolutely mind blowing. IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0770802/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
Social, Economic, Religion, Political and Humanity documentaries: Zeitgeist I II III imdb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1166827/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
Psycho wise: PI (Darren Aronofsky), “Fear and loathing in Las vegas” (Terry Gilliam), Old Boy (Chan-wook Park).
Cinematography: “In the mood for love” (Kar Wai Wong)
the list continues but no time to continue…
